Ties you don't wear anymore?
I have a friend, caregiver for her grandchildren, who is supplementing her income by making really lovely handbags out of men's ties. She needs more ties, any kind, any color.
If you have one or many ties in your closet that you don't wear any more, would you bring them to church on Sunday? I'll be glad to see that she gets them. She will be very appreciative. So will I.
Parking -- walk a little way for a friend?
Some of our older members, those with health considerations, and those with little children would sure appreciate closer-in parking spaces being freed up. The north and south lots most of us use are getting full.
If you'd be willing to park in front of the elementary school off 120 or between the stadium and the middle school classroom building off Cardinal Lane, it would be a loving help to those who need closer access to the building.

We have four great parking options:
1. Off of 120 in directly in front of the middle school cafeteria building on the north side of the building -- if you can make the walk up the covered walkway, this is close and convenient.
2. Off of 120 directly in front of the elementary school -- it's a little bit more of a walk, but those who need to be closer to the entrance will appreciate your thoughtfulness in freeing up close-in spaces for them if you park here.
3. Off of Cardinal Lane on the south side of the middle school cafeteria -- it's close and convenient to the south entrance. Just remember to turn south on Cardinal and follow the signs.
4. If the south lot fills up, there's all that great parking on the huge lot near the football stadium. You can, of course, drop off passengers near the south entrance before you drive over to park.
